Do you dare drinking Kopi Luwak, a coffee which beans are coming out of Luwak’s feces? Is it safe enough for your stomach? Kopi Luwak is the most expensive coffee in the world, selling for between $100 and $600 USD per pound, and is sold mainly in Japan and the United States by weight, and served in coffeehouses in Southeast Asia by the cup.

“Yes, it is” said Adjunct Professor Massimo Marcone, a food scientist from University of Guelp, Ontario, Canada, “although the beans has passed through luwak’s digestive system, my test shows that the counts of bacteria are lower on Kopi Luwak than on regular coffee. A strange finding but one that has been subjected to a repeated battery of scientific tests.” he added.

I braved myself and tried the original cup of Kopi Luwak at;

Kopi Luwak
Pacific Place Mall LG No. 9
Jend. Sudirman St. Kav. 52-53
South Jakarta City, 12190

At Rph 75,000 per serving and served in their own style I have to say it has a nice aroma and very tasty 🙂 so much so that I bought the 3% mixture roasted coffee at Rph 30,000 per box. Wanted to buy the original Kopi Luwak gift set but at Rph 500,000 mmm I think its too much lah :).
